I have a deep love for Detroit Poetry. Our poets go hard like no other! Experiencing Detroit poetry live is a must!! That’s why I have asked good friend and powerful poet in his own right, Ceasar Torreano to give Holla If You Hear Me the weekly rundown of venues where you can experience Detroit Poetry live!
